I used spybot to scan my computer and found DSO EXPLOIT (something in registry) and spybot "fixed", but apprently not. Everytime, I scan my system, "DSO EXPLOIT" always appeared. Is it a virus? Any one encounter this before? How to remove it?

That is a bug in Spybot. There has been a beta fix released for it. Just download it on top of your current version. It will change your version to 1.3.1TX After you download it, run Spybot S&D, let it fix the exploit, then reboot and run it again. It should be gone, if not, just put it into ignore until Spybot comes out with a permanent fix for it which should be soon. I'm not sure if the rebooting is totally necessary but it seems to work better that way.

I had this same problem. The solution Roddy32 suggests does work, and the DSO problem will "go away".

It now removed DSO Exploit. Thank you for your help.

I still run a problem that I am unable to delete the links from my IE Favorites. There are several folders and linksin appeared inIE Favorites when I clicked it (I have no clue how my nephew got into it). If I use organize favorites and try to delete them, and they are hidden.

Initially, I thought by removing DSO Exploit and the links and folders should be appeared. Apparenetly they are not. Virus?

Appreciate anyone advice here. Thank you all.
